Crown Range Cellar ‘The Voyage’ Hawke’s Bay Merlot/Malbec/Cabernet Franc 2013

Blended Red from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 29-Dec-2015
Full, dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red, youthfully purple in appearance. The bouquet is tight and firmly concentrated with deep, youthfully primary and aromatic notes of ripe dark red and spicy black berry and plum fruit, along with bramble, earth and nuances of blackcurrants. The nose unfolds dark and savoury herbal detail in the glass. Medium-full bodied and elegantly proportioned, the palate is tight and refined with ripe and sweet fruit flavours of dark red berry fruits, plums, spices, earth and blackcurrants. The fruit is plush and slippery, the palate underlined by considerable fine-grained tannin structure and grip. Excellent acidity and freshness enlivens the fruit and mouthfeel, and the flavours lead to a bright and sweet, long-lingering finish. This is an elegantly proportioned, plush and juicy, rich dark berry and plum fruited Merlot/Malbec/Franc blend with currant and spice interest and a firm and lively tannin line. Match with beef, lamb, venison and semi-hard cheeses over the next 6-9 years. 13.0% alc. 18.5/20 Dec 2015 RRP $56.00
